Living on campus is a great way to get connected with your peers, and to engage with our clubs, organizations, and events. Students who live more than 30 miles away from the college are required to live on campus for their freshman, sophomore, and junior years while at AIC. For more information on the residency requirement, please click the link above.

If you do not qualify for commuter status, you may request a Residency Requirement Waiver. Students who do not qualify to live on campus are students who:

  • Are a freshman, sophomore, or junior by credits (have 87 or less credits) by the first day of the fall semester - AND:
  • Have a permanent address with a parent or guardian that is more than 30 miles from AIC's Springfield, MA campus - AND/OR:
  • Are under 23 years old by the first day of the fall semester - AND/OR:
  • Have not live on campus for 3+ years by the first day of the fall semester - AND/OR:
  • Do not live with spouse, or is legally responsible for a child or other family dependent

Requests are reviewed by the Waiver and Accommodations Committee on a rolling basis. Most requests can expect a response within 5 business days unless the College is closed or member of the committee are experiencing a high-volume of calls for support.

All undergraduate students living on campus are required to carry a meal plan. Students may request a waiver or a reduction to their current meal plan. All requests are reviewed by the Office of Residence Life, the Center for Accessibility Services and Academic Accommodations, the Student Accounts Office, and the Financial Aid Office. Waiver or reductions are not guaranteed upon request and may require additional follow-up. 

Commuter Students may purchase any meal plan we offer to residential students, or a meal plan offered exclusively to commuter students. Click here to request a meal plan today!

The Damage Billing Appeal Form is used for students who received damage billing charges after they moved out and their housing assignment was inspected by a Residence Life professional staff member. Damage billing will be released via AIC Email; from the day damage billing is released, students will have 14 days to submit a Damage Billing Appeal Form.

Should you find that you'd like to change your housing assignment, please submit the Room Change Request Form. We will be glad to offer all options available to you. Please know that options may be limited by the number of beds available in a residence hall, or the waitlist we currently have.
